brooks, they sat there hour after hour, taking the questions in good humor. and that gives them credit to their benefit, that they did go through this process. ultimately, though, tonight, as rupert murdoch did say he doesn't take responsibility for what took place although he will have to be the man that sorts it out. >> are you responsible for this whole fiasco? >> no. >> who are responsible? >> the people i trusted to run it and then maybe the people they trusted. >> can you name people? >> i worked with mr. hinton for 52 years and i would trust him with my life. >> what i think is interesting in that exchange, the normal phraseology for people doing that is, i was not to blame, but i take responsibility. the buck stops here. and what we didn't get there was that phraseology or some version thereof. we also finally, wolf, we did get later on in his final statement the hacking was wrong, the payments to the police were wrong, no excuses. >> and there was an incident there at one point where an intruder just showed up with some shaving cream. tell our viewers what happened. >> the pic
tell the house about the conversations she had about the bskyb bid with mr. murdoch and rebecca brooks? >> all the details of the meetings and explain all of the conversations were appropriate and she could ask the members of her party to be equally transparent. >> does the prime minister join me in hoping that this is the end of the ever increasing rise of misconduct by police officers across the country? >> the police have to have an operation, have to have a relationship with the media, both at the top level to communicate with the police's right to do strategically, and at the operational level to help them with crime. we have to try to make sure they do not have an inappropriate relationship. >> prime minister, have you ever mentioned the word "bskyb" in the presence of rebecca brooks? >> does not raise serious questions about how the previous limit operated that members opposite thought that it a prepared for the prime minister to be brief on police matters? and the e-mails that were released, didn't show how professional his chief of staff is? >> i thank my hon. friend for putti
of how these men and rebekah brooks allowed or created or allowed to exist a culture that these things could happen and they didn't know about it. >> and it was profound theater to begin with, and as you mentioned, a lot of questions we would still like answered. we'll see how that plays out, but in the middle of this theater, a subplot, if you will. somebody tries to pie rupert murdoch. describe the scene as you recall it and especially i would say a rather feisty defense of mr. murdoch by his wife. >> oh, i mean, well, we're watching from the back. the picture -- all of a sudden, the noise. you see this woman in pink launch herself, going to give somebody a right hook. you then see james murdoch get out the chair like this. now, at first i couldn't tell whether mr. murdoch sr. had been hit. you can then -- in later pictures if you look close, you can see the foam. more than one person suggested that, you know, this could have been a brick, it could have been, you know, nails, it could have been much more serious. you have to bear in mind if it had been anything like that, it wouldn't
and gave a full and sincere apology. >> rupert and james murdoch and rebecca brooks will be forced to appear here in a committee and grill eed closelily politicians who want answers as to how all of this activity went on. one of the people who will be interrogating rebecca brooks had some tough words for her. >> i think he was inevitable. rebecca brooks has given the resignation message she should have given on day one of this scandal when nick davis of the uk "guardian" revealed milly's phone had been hacked. >> but the political dimensions continue to evolve as well. downing street has been forced to put out a list of guests that the prime minister david cameron welcomed to his country residents checkers. mo among them was the now disgraced former editor of "the news of the world." a man hired as director of communications. he visited the prime minister three months after he was forced to step down from that high profile political role. wolf? >> dan rivers in london, much more on this story coming up later. meanwhi meanwhile, libyan rebels locked in heated battle while gadhafi's
? edited, by the way, at that time by rebecca brooks. they sent 20 scantily clad women to her office and had loads of photographs everywhere. they described the minister at the time as frumpy, dumpy, fat and ugly. there was humiliation as a form of coercion and then we heard yesterday, gordon brown, the former prime minister, talking about the fact that his disabled son, his son has cystic fibrosis, medical records for his son alleged by gordon brown in the house of commons yesterday, was stolen from a hospital by a criminal that he believes was working for "the sunday times" newspaper. so you have that kind of power. you have the ability to humiliate an mp and the ability to intervene in their personal life and that's why he was so forceful and powerful. i can tell you, andrea, until about three weeks ago, you couldn't count on five fingers the number of politicians who would stand up to rupert murdoch in britain because every single one of them was frightened of his influence. >> of course, gordon brown's little boy frazier is doing very well but it was at birth that that informati
on the republican side. david brooks wrote, if the republican party were a normal party, it would take advantage of this amazing moment. it is being offered the deal of the century. trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few hundred billion in revenue increases. for now the republican party cannot take the obama deal and he knows it. it has freed him to offer better and better deals giving him credit for compromising, but they can't say yes because of the tax part, but eventually the republicans have to agree to something, and that is where obama's plan might fail his party. after he cut taxes in 19 81, ronald reagan signed three bills attempting to get debt under control, and 88% of the deficit reduction in the bills came from, wait for it, tax increases. if reagan were president today, the tea party would be primarying the gipper. >>> and then in 1990, george h.w. bush struck a deficit deal which was two-thirds spending cuts and one-third tax increases. clinton then signed his deficit deals in '93 and '97 and like bush two-thirds spending to one-third tax increases. when the d
his son and rebekah brooks all apologizing for "the news of the world"'s behavior. >> this is the most humble day of my career. the same story is not enough. things must be put right. no excuses. . it's a matter of great regret of mine, my father's and everyone at news corporation, and these are standards, these actions do not live up to the standards that our company aspires to. it's our determination to both put things right. make sure these things don't happen again. >> i would like to add my own personal appaologies and the apologies that james and rupert murdoch made today. clearly, what happened at "the news of the world" and certainly the allegations of voice intercepts, is pretty horrific and abhorrent. >> as i said, robert, it's an apology without a confession. what does that mean? >> we've seen it in the states here so many times, mistake was made. we know exactly the way that the grammar that's used. here we have somewhat of an about the je object but no specificity to an apology. i didn't hear one. >> this is a multilevel scandal. this doesn't just involve news corporation.
today. we are going to start with david brooks. >> over the past few weeks, washington seemed dysfunctional. public disgust has risen to epic levels. they have been responsible and brave. if you are a democrat, you hate to see domestic cuts. if you are a republican you love revenue increases, even little ones. standing still is not an option. keep your reservations in mind and let the mission continue. okay, new york times the lesser depression by paul krugman. there's an old quotation that always comes to mind when i look at public policy. you do not know, my son, with how little wisdom the world is governed. now that wisdom is on full display of policy elites as both sides bungle the response to economic trauma, ignoring the lessons of history. >> howard dean, does david brooks have it right? are the republicans finally coming or paul krugman, the deficit cuts are only going to extend this small depression? >> i guess it's both and neither. there have been grown ups -- the nice thing is there are grown ups in washington still. they have input. the problem is, before the elec
faith. >> i think it does need to go for what it's done. >> reporter: rebekah brooks was editor a decade ago when many of the alleged crimes were committed. she gets to keep her job. and so does james murdoch who runs the british arm of the company. he, too, said it wasn't his fault. >> i acted on the advice of executives and lawyers with a completion investigation. >> reporter: as s e ultimate boss, james could face prosecution under u.s. and british business law. if convicted, jail time. >> while brooks and james murdoch knew about it or not, they're still responsible for what goes on their watch. it only adds to the misery that rupert murdoch's got to deal with this week. >> reporter: this scandal is rippling across the u.s. according to a rival tabloid, "the daily mirror," they tried to hack into the cell phones of 9/11 victims. apparently it didn't work. >> jeffery, thanks so much. >>> you know, we all know that driving while texting or talking on a cell phone is a dangerous behavior, shown in study after study. many still do it. is there any way t
95 today, same for ukiah. petaluma, 84. novato 85. vallejo 84. probably closer to hidden brook. 7 as on the coast. there's too -- there's too much. 90 danil --en -- dash danville. >>> morning fog not going anywhere, it will hang around for a while. but inland temperatures will come out and top out friday and take us into the weekend. 8:11. with her words convince him to do it? what senator diane stein fine is -- feinstein is telling ed lee to do but will he do it? >>> it's 58 in corte madera, and fairfax. once the fog burns off, it will be sunny. >>> 8:14. today in afghanistan, the mayor of kandahar was killed in a suicide bomb attack. the bomber hid the bomb inside his turban, then set it off inside city aols hall where the mayor was at a meeting. this comes just days after president hamid karzai's half brother was killed, also in kandahar. the taliban said they committed both of those attacks. >>> the state department issues a tral warning for americans -- travel warning for americans saying al qaeda is planning attacks against u.s. interests all over the world. the u.s. says th
in -- that what we'll kick off with with our power panel. brook goldstein is with us and susan silivik is ceo and cofounder of it's your biz.com. what do you think when you hear diminishing numbers of people in this country think i'm probably not going to get there. >> it sickens me because being an entrepreneur, it's the quintessential american dream. here is what's happening. small businesses are saying we sat by and watched as big government bailed out big business. but they have done nothing to us. while big government is attached to wall street, they disconnected from main street. that american dream is diminishing. i hear from lots of small business owners. we are ready to throw in the towel and calm it quits. martha: you watch generations of businesses that built up and such an incredible opportunity. they seem to appeal to they won't achieve the same level of success and feel their children will not succeed. >> look back at a poll in may have you had youth staying for the first time that they will not be better off than their parents. that's astonishing to me to see that and think abo
. on the case of rebecca brooks, i don't think it is right for the prime minister to start picking and choosing who should run and who should not run media organizations. it has been reported that she offered her resignation over this. before i take your questions, let me say this. for people watching this scandal unfolded, there is something disturbing about what they see. just think about who they put their trust in. the politicians that represent them, and all of them -- a political system that people think is on their side and a press that is yet free and vigorous and holds those in power to drive them completely mad. we need a free press that is all so clean and trustworthy. that is what people want, that is not what i want. -- and that is what i want. >> we have asked him many times about your decision to appoint an be as your main communications man. you said that he resigned and paid the price. given that hundreds of people lost their jobs yesterday, given that the editor said that he warned you of what they might have had and you would have known what would have happened under his watc
